Morning at the Office examining the law case. Looked over the Massachusetts Statutes in relation to deeds and devises, which constituted my morning’s work. In the afternoon went to Mr. Blake’s Office to see Sidney Brooks and was detained there all the afternoon listening to long stories. Took a walk, met Richardson who accompanied me to my room, found a note from Abby requesting me to go out to Medford,1
but it reached me too late for this evening. George came in and we drank a bottle of Champagne after which Richardson begged my company to eat a Venison Supper with which invitation I complied and did not return until midnight.
